This 14K (unmarked but tested) ladies ring features a hand-carved shell cameo of a woman's face in partial profile. The cameo is raised up more than most, rising more than 1/4" above the hand-made bezel. The face is white with long hair in an old-fashioned style; the background is brown and provides contrast. The cameo is of fine quality. It is smooth from wear; the nose is slightly flattened; this is to be expected with a raised shell cameo, as the material is very soft. The 14K mounting dates from the 1970's. I am not sure of the age of the cameo itself. This lovely ring is a size 7 1/4. The top measures 3/4" X 5/8" X 1/4" high.
